Art Accessibility for Cultural Preservation By Art D’Egypte

Art D’Egypte releases a series of exclusive never-before-seen online content aimed to

educate, inspire, and inform the youth of today on the importance of art history and

cultural preservation in the sustainable development of our nation.

 

“Art is what we turn to in times of turmoil and uncertainty. People are drawing, painting,

creating, writing and learning. As part of our initiative to make art accessible for all, we’ve

seen the opportunity in these difficult times, since the world is online, we will provide them

with content they can really learn from as a form of free art education,” said Nadine Abdel

Ghaffar, Founder of Art D’Egypte.

 

“Art mobility has the power to move mountains. It is a discourse between people, places

and cultures. Our model of leaving the white-cube behind and activating heritage sites with

site-specific art ensures that we remove all the layers of intimidation, status symbol, and

societal barriers associated with art viewing and art education,” Abdel Ghaffar added.

 

Art D’Egypte’s initiative aims make art more accessible to all by presenting a number of

different activities via its social media platforms with the aim of spreading awareness and

artistic culture among the public, especially in light of the global calls for social divergence

and the importance of utilizing this time for activities that enrich culture and awareness.

 


 

Below is a list of the initiatives we activated in March and that will go on for the month of

April, all of which will be online, and accessible to all. Stay tuned.
